Rooms are a bit tired but there is some progress being made on this front. Our bedroom was spacious and clean but needs remedial work where pipes or...

The Tarbet hotel is in a beautiful location right on the banks of Loch Lomond. The hotel itself is fine but in need of some refurbishment. The staff were helpful and friendly and the food was good. Breakfast was buffet with plentiful supplies of good quality bacon, sausage etc and cereals and fruit and yoghurt. The evening meal was three...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and had 3 booked 3 rooms for our party of 5. The hotel building on the exterior was beautiful but inside was a bit dated although the rooms themselves were very nice and comfortable with free tea and coffee facilities. The rooms were made up daily and towels changed which was good....

On our arrival at the Tarbet hotel, Loch Lomond, we found ourselves having to wait at the reception, despite the only ones been present. Until we made ourselves known to a lady siting in a rear office. She left the reception area and returned with a mature scottish member of staff who made no apologies for the inconvenience of our...

Traditional Scottish Hotel offering clean room,comfy bed,good food served by courteous well trained polite staff.It does not claim to be five star but considering the evening entertainment which was excellent on Friday night was included in the price it was a really good deal. Plus the Guinness was spot on.

We stayed here for one night over Easter and it was one night too long. It's a real shame as this hotel has so much potential. The building was beautiful but when you entered you were in a time warp. The staff were all helpful and pleasant it was everything else about the hotel that let it down. The walk...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated within one of Scotland’s largest national parks, the Tarbet has had a rich history as a resting place for travellers for over 400 years. The present building dates back 250 years and was built in the Baronial style. The exterior has recently been redecorated and the hotel presents an impressive first impression even today. There are a total of 69 rooms arranged over two floors, some of which offer spectacular views. The surrounding scenery is second to none, as the hotel looks out over Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond from its location on the banks of the Loch itself. Admire the beautifully decorated restaurant where some tables overlook the loch and take advantage of the spacious entertainment lounge with bar. The Tarbet also has the benefit of a comfortable residents’ lounge with board games and books to help you relax and unwind. The perfect end to a great day’s sightseeing. ... more   less
